The Virtual Reality Immersion Therapy (VRIT) platform and biofeedback used at this practice allows you to immerse in different simulated relaxing environments. There are guided exercises which help you practice diaphragmatic breathing, muscle tension/relaxation, body scans, and present focus. Biofeedback can also be attached during these exercises, which monitors heart rate. This allows you to learn and practice regulating physical body reactions, including heart rate. You will be able to see a graph of your heart rate throughout the entire exercise.
Using Virtual reality (VR) to help with teaching mindfulness is effective in helping people focus and relax, without having to imagine, while also viewing and regulating heart rate in real time.
